Glazed Tiles: Client Project Update

Fond'a Ronda and I are at it again!

The blue prints for her custom home are finalized (after numerous changes...
better now than later, right?) and it's time to get to the pretty part.
We started at Renaissance Tile and found inspiration from her current
china that she uses daily. This will be a stunning combo
using gray white with a pop of yellow!
The possibilities are endless...

We've booked another day this week to scour many more
tile showrooms to add to her collection... Ann Sacks is definitely
high on the priority list.

Read more about her project here and here.

The backsplash sets the stage for your entire kitchen.


Here are a few ideas using the ever popular
Glazed Tiles:

 Something that has taken a new look and
gone from traditional to TODAY!
Many of the high end tile manufacturers are coming out with
  incredible designs of ceramic glazed tiles. 

They are incorporating them into backsplashes and even FULL walls!

 Ann Sacks carries this beautiful interpretation of the traditional hexagon design.
With it's inverted and exposed edges, this tile gives much dimension to the room!

A new fad that is here to stay is the use of glazed "subway" tiles.
This is used in 2 different ways -- one with a white grout and one with dark grout.
Both give off different looks that take a traditional bath or kitchen to something
new, transitional and fresh!!

Walker Zanger carries this beautiful tile.

Another Walker Zanger tile is this teal glazed mosaic.
I love this contemporary take on the linework and design of the pattern.

Many of Walker Zanger's speciality tiles have gold or
silver leaf incorporated into them in some way. Talk about flashy!!

 Ann Sacks carries this elongated hexagon alternating height glazed tile!
I think this is absolutely amazing. They depth it creates along with the
glazed look gives it a very sophisticated look.

This metallic backsplash is made for a very specific type of client!
Anyone out there brave enough??

 Lastly, Walker Zanger is wonderful about bringing COLOR into a room.
Use this glazed ceramic as a wall accent or a small backsplash border.
Either get incredible color and forms.

 A white, glazed ceramic tile can give a room and very fresh, clean look.
Let's get to work on YOUR kitchen or bath now!!

With all these great looks, who knows what I will be tiling next:)

Until Next Time,
